Real World Big Data in Azure

by Elton Stoneman

The Big Data components of Azure let you build solutions which can process billions of events, using technologies you already know. In this course, we build a real world Big Data solution in two phases, starting with just .NET technologies and then adding Hadoop tools.

What you'll learn

How do you make sense of Big Data? When you’re receiving 100 million events per hour and you need to save them all permanently, but also process key metrics to show real-time dashboards, what technologies and platforms can you use? This course answers those questions using Microsoft Azure, .NET, and Hadoop technologies: Event Hubs, Cloud Services, Web Apps, Blob Storage, SQL Azure, and HDInsight. We build a real solution that can process ten billion events every month, store them for permanent access, and distill key streams of data into powerful real-time visualizations.
